    Yea I wonder how many sales Samsung is leaving on the table by simply not offering a 32GB version of most of their devices. I would have bought a 32GB tab S 8.4 5 minutes ago if I could have found one. Alas I took my dollars elsewhere. Maybe next year......

    And yes, I know samsung isn't exactly hurting and needing customers and every sale. But just imagine how much more attractive their lineup could be with more built in storage.

    Probably around 85% of their sales is probably the 16gb model. Remember the average Joe doesn't know that kit Kat restricts apps saved on SD card functions and etc and most people rather save the $$ and buy the 16gb option

    restrict apps saved on SD card? So when you move apps to the SD card you can't use it?

    How kit Kat works now as far as SD cards go is apps can't read and where ever they please like there used to. This makes it more secure but the downside is it makes it a lot harder for consumers.


    You can still run apps while it is "saved" to sd card. I don't do a run around like another thread suggests

    Yea that was pretty poor wording. You can still move apps that support it to the SD card like you can before. But apps can only write to one folder on the SD card, not the entire card. Best example of this is a file manager app that can't change files, etc on an SD card.

    I want 32GB for two main reasons. 1) if I'm spending $400+ for a tablet I'm going to have for at least a couple of years it needs to have more than 8ish available gigs of storage on board. I don't know what the landscape looks like in 24 months of android and I want to give the device the best possible chance of being viable and usable 24 months later. 2) not every app supports being moved to or offloading of data to SD cards, and eating up 8GB of space does not take long.

    Having the SD card slot is fine. But it shouldn't be the excuse to put as little storage as they can get away with onto the device. It's 2014. 32GB should be the minimum, the cost increase to go from 16 to 32GB, especially at the scale that Samsung can do, is negligible.

    That is why i spent $150 more for the Tab s 10.5 at Bestbuy which exclusively offers the 32gb option smh. I order off NewEgg since no sales tax on it for me

    I don't quite get the SD card... What do you mean about "But apps can only write to one folder on the SD card, not the entire card"???

    Before Android 4.4 AKA Kit Kat Apps could pretty much write onto the SD card wherever they wanted to.... Now in Kit Kat they can only write into the folder they are allotted to if they have one basically

    If you want to read more about it just google Micro SD card and Android 4.4 together ( or put in Kit Kat)

    Here is a website i found googling it

    Yes, indeed. I will not buy another Nexus unless at least 32 gb and SD card. I will not buy another small tablet unless same. 8.4 is almost too big so I will not be interested in any 10" or 12" tablets. Hell, I can get a 13" Ultrabook if I want something that big.

    Yes, but if you root you can easily get around that. I won't buy a device unless I can root and rom. At least not until the Mfrs. stop with all the bloatware and unnecessary tricked up UI's

    Well you'll never find another nexus device with SD support so you're going to be waiting a long time.

    You're right about the Nexus I suppose. So I will most likely end up with a Gtab or similar.
